Firefox already has the option of blocking website notification requests. However, Mozilla wants to go further by replacing them altogether. The newly available Firefox 72 replaces irksome notification pop-ups with a speech bubble that seems within the handlebar. You will still have access to notifications if you’d like them. However, your web surfing will not come to a screeching pause whenever you go to a site for the first time.
That is also an important update if you’re privacy-minded. The browser now blocks fingerprinting scripts by default for all users. Sites ought to have a harder time giving you a unique profile. You possibly can still allow them if they’re essential for a website.
There’s additionally one addition that is purely meant for fun. Picture-in-picture video playback is now out there for Mac and Linux users. Many movies now have the choice of playing in a pop-up if you’d like to multitask. Whereas this isn’t a new feature within the browser world, it is perhaps welcome if you prefer Mozilla’s strategy.
